A farmer who refuses to abandon his cattle farm in the Fukushima nuclear exclusion zone stands in front of an overgrown rice field near his contaminated farm.

“My life has changed so much since the earthquake, it’s unbelievable”

An abandoned football pitch seen in an evacuated school near the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant, Japan. 

The school playing field is overgrown now - the tall grass slowly giving way to small samplings, that will one day become trees. It takes little imagination to hear the laughter of the kids who are now absent from this scene. 

On the eve of the World Cup final, here is a photograph of the goal where football has not been played for three and a half years.

Cracks in the tarmac from the huge 2011 earthquake in Japan, seen in an abandoned restaurant car park in near the Fukushima nuclear power station. The cracks have been repaired by the owner of the restaurant who visit their old house in the contamination Zone as often as they can. They hope to one day be allowed to return to their much loved home.

Vegetation grows through the smashed-out windows of a wrecked car a few kilometres north of the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power station, Japan. 

Three and a half years ago a huge earthquake and Tsunami devastated much of this coastline, killing over 16,000 people.

What this photograph does not reveal is that this place is also highly contaminated with harmful radioactivity. The Tsunami triggered a nuclear disaster; comparable only to an accident and place that I have come to know very well - Chernobyl. Vast areas of Japan continue to suffer the consequences of nuclear catastrophe, with widespread uncertainty and dislocation from the landscape.

Chernobyl and Fukushima may be separated by 5000 miles and a quarter of a century, but in my mind they are moving closer.

Sacks of radioactive material stored in large black bags near the destroyed Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, Japan. It is three and a half years since the ‘triple-disaster’ hit Japan with a large Earthquake, Tsunami, and nuclear disaster affective large areas of Japan leading to the displacement of at least 160,000 people from their original homes due to fear of radiation.

Seeing the landscape and talking with people affected by the disaster reminded me so much of my time researching the Chernobyl nuclear accident.

The view over the English Channel 70 years after the D-Day invasion of mainland Europe. Below the English coast west of Portsmouth, from where many of the 156,000 allied died troops set out on their journey to the Normandy beaches  during ‘Operation Overlord’.

"Oh, Kitty, the best part about the invasion is that I have the feeling that friends are on the way."

- Anne Frank, June 6th, 1944

Sorting-through and editing hundreds and hundreds of photographs taken by people who live around the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine. Named “Disposable”, this photo-project reveals a more intimate look at the reality of life in a post-atomic landscape. Part of a four year in-depth ethnographic stuffy for a PhD in Human Geography.

Project will soon be available on www.thomdavies.com
